Scince it’s Friday (woo hoo!) I thought we’d do something fun.  These little turkeys (speaking of turkeys, did you see what mine did yesterday??) are perfect for school parties, family nights, and Thanksgiving place holders.  At the end there’s an easy pilgrim hat as well.  I don’t really know where this idea originated from- I made the turkeys as a kid as I’m sure many of you have and I’ve seen the little hats all over the internet.  Both Turkey Day classics, so go have some fun!

 

Hope you enjoy these fun little things- Happy Friday!

    Such cute little turkeys!

    My mom actually has chickens so I don't know if it's the same on turkeys but I think the "gobble gobble" is called a wattle. :)

    Jenn says:

    you guys are dangerous!!! ;)

    Now the little man (errr, the almost 9yo) is requesting these for his class party for Thanksgiving.

    You guys are sure keeping me busy with your recipes!! LOL

    any other ideas of what you can use in place of reeses cups since no peanut butter is allowed in any classroom treat?

      Tammy says:

    Way cute! I love them. I know my girls will have a blast making them. A little tip with the peanut butter cups. If you freeze them then they cut a little better, but then you don't have as many broken ones to eat! What to do, what to do? Thank you for all of your wonderful ideas!

    I am answering your question as to what I am thankful for this Fall…..(in your contest)
    First and formost I am thankful for my family, children, grandchildren and friends. My God and America, and the people who protect us. Good health, home and happiness, (good food too). We have been self employed since 1976 and for that we feel truly blessed. Last but not least, my husband Steve whom I work with side by side all these years! Also, with all our country's problems, I still fell pretty thankful.

    Tina @ Squirrel Acorns says:

    LOVE the turkeys. My 6yo wants to make them now but I'm making him wait until before Thanksgiving. For the pilgrim hats…..how do you dip marshmallows? Is that too easy of a question? Should I know this? I'm not sure how to hold the marshmallow when you are dipping so it doesn't get all messed up?

  58. 58
    Sara @ Our Best Bites says:

    Tina, good question- especially considering I didn't give any explanation at all! lol

    It helps to use melted chocolate with a bit of shortening mixed in (1tsp shortening for every 1 C chocolate chips) or use chocolate bark which is what I used. Drop the marshmallow in there and use a spoon to get it covered all the way. Then I use 2 toothpicks. Stick one in one end to pull the marshmallow out and let the excess chocolate drip off. Place it on the cookie and then use the second toothpick to hold the marshmallow down while you pull out the toothpick that's stuck in the marshmallow. Does that make sense?

    Nicole says:

    We made these last night for a pre-thanksgiving dinner and put them at the top of each place setting. So cute and festive. We figured out if you very carefully with a sharp serrated knife cut a bit off the bottom of an oreo (the one that has the candy corn feathers in it) to make it flat (kind of like you do with the PB cup) it sits on top of the base oreo much easier!

    Casey says:

    Some folks were asking about alternatives for the peanut butter cups to use in classrooms/schools where they have a “peanut-free” requirement for class treats. I’m not sure how abundantly one could find these, but Mallow Cups are the same shape but marshmallow-filled. You could possibly use the bell-shaped solid chocolates (usually a generic form of a Hershey kiss) or thicker chocolate coins (check out the generic bulk individually wrapped candy section at places like Meijers).

    • 103.1
      Jackie Schaefer says:

      We have peanut butter allergies in the family. Used the Hershey Kiss, cut off the tip and one edge to make flat. The body is not as big as using the peanut butter cup, but turned out just a cute. If no one has seen the turkeys already…they won’t know the difference. Thanks for the receipe.

    Thanks & have a blessed day

    • 119.1

      Try nuking them in the microwave for a few seconds just so they soften up. Also, it sounds like you’re probably using a yellow gel (does it say gel on the tube?) If you have regular frosting, it should show up no problem.

My grandchildren will benefit from your website and my friends guessed pretty well on how to make the turkeys! Thanks!

    This was a super cute idea but…I bought Oreos and all of the cookies were too thin (even double stuff) to put the candy corn in. Tried the icing and it didn’t help. If Oreo Double Stuff was actually DOUBLE, I am sure it would’ve worked.

    OhmyGOSH… so freakin’ adorable! Not to mention, almost ALL of my favorite candies. Hmm…. If I can get bacon incorporated, I might just die and go to a state of orgasmic levels! :D

    Don’t know if you found out what “It” is but it is a wattle. Cookies are a great idea for a classroom of kids. (make sure no peanut allergies) My first graders love this activity.

    I made these turkeys for my first grade class today. They loved them! I was pronounced the best teacher ever. :) Thanks!

    Renee Wilmath says:

    I would definitely use the sprinkles for the eyes. I decided I would use my cake decorating kit and I didn’t wait long enough for the yellow eye frosting to dry and then when I tried to put the black on there the frosting pulled off and made the eyes all smeary. FYI! Get the sprinkles for the eyes and save yourself alot of trouble.

    Pamela Schofield says:

    These are wonderful! I will be making these next week for Thanksgiving table. The red skin under the beak is the wattle, the red skin hanging over and to the side of the beak is the snood, and the beard is a little tuft of feathers that stick out on the chest/breast of the turkey.

    OH dang it! I am sitting at the table doing these and I came back to see if you had some hints for the cookies not cracking when putting the candy corn in…DUH DUH DUH…I didn’t see those integral words “DOUBLE STUFF” oreos…and now I see you have it IN BOLD. What an idiot I am. On the way to the grocery for double stuff Oreos. Note to self…this is the second time in the past week I have missed some integral piece of information in a recipe. READ THE INGREDIENT LIST x3!!!

    Rachel says:

    I just made these with my almost 4 year old to take to her little friends for a thanksgiving treat. I ended up using a Jr Mint as the head because I hate Whoppers with a passion. ;) It worked well, especially since the backside of the mint is flat. Thanks for such a fun activity for my daughter and me to do together.

    Is there a certain type of frosting you need to buy so that it stiffens up in order to keep the cookies together???????

    Brilliant! I can’t wait to make these. The little red thing is called a waddle I think.

    Cheryl says:

    Hello, These are so adorable. I just made a bunch for Thanksgiving but want to know what kind of icing you used for the eyes. I used Cake Mate Writing Icing because they came in small tubes and were in yellow and red, which were the colors I needed. The problem with it was that the icing ran down over the face of the turkey rather than staying as a ball of icing for the eyes of the turkey. Just wondering what kind of icing works that stays in place. Thanks.

  164. 164
    Cheryl says:

    I just looked at the photo again of the ingredients you used and I used the exact same icing for the eyes. I wonder why mine dripped so much??

  165. 165

    Just got done making ours with my 6, 5 and 3 year olds! It was cool. I think next time i will have to use a stiffer chocolate frosting…they are a bit sloppy with my whipped frosting. But oh so cute! Thanks for the ideas! Pilgrim hats are tomorrow afternoons activity.

    Kate says:

    Sara! Is there a difference between frosting and icing? And how far in advance can i make these adorable little treats?

    Any suggestions on what to use besides candy corn? I can’t seem to find it anywhere? All the stores went from Halloween to Christmas candy fairly quickly! I like the bright colors of the candy corn but thinking of trying pretzel sticks instead. Want to make these with the kids today to bring for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Happy Turkey day all!

    I am amazed by how well your turkeys turned out. I just tried making them for the first time and my eyes and “gobbles” do not look half as good as yours do. Thanks for the idea and for the instructions. It was a fun project and I look forward to showing off my turkey army tomorrow at Thanksgiving dinner.

    From doing these I would suggest using double stuff oreos so the candy corn stay in place easier and aren’t breaking your cookies!

    Julia says:

    Such a fun and cute activity! Just as a note- gel frosting does not work at all for the glue. Thanks for sharing!!

    Kate DePriest says:

    Made these yesterday with my 3 boys… while our turkeys are not 100% sanitary =) these turned out super cute!!

    Little trick… put the turkeys into the refrigerator in between steps to let the icing harden up… otherwise it’s almost impossible to get the stuff to stay together.

    Also… be warned… don’t try making these at home if you have ANY perfectionist tendencies. =)

  182. 182

    Thanks for sharing this darling little Turkeys. I didn’t get them made this year but they will be front and center next Thanksgiving! Blessings to both of you and your families.

    OMG!! they’re ADORABLE! your tutorials are so precise that I just want to try it by myself when I get home.By the way I spotted that one of our users pinned this up to her Pinspire collection I just want to verify that you are okay with this.

    Jen says:

    I made the Oreo turkeys this year and they were a hit. While I was assembling them my older sister sat next to me with her smart craftiness and placed candy corn all the way around some oreos…instant (and super cute) sun flowers. Both looked great on the dinner table!

    I love these… made them in Nov. 2011 and will continue to do so every November!! BIG hit with the kids @ the family get together… I love being a favorite auntie, now these do take a little time to put together and I have to put mine in the fridge to make everything “stick” well but it’s so worth it! Can’t wait to try making the penguin cupcakes this upcoming December, looks like effort is definately needed but they are so cute!!!
